    That's part of it. Most of the players don't seem hungry at all. I wonder if guys like Bev and Brewer getting paid had anything to do with their decline. Others though are just on the downside of their careers. There's no getting around it.

    It's hard to get rebounded 47-26. Bravo, Rockets. And I think we need more smallball.

    Clearly, the Rockets are not trying to win! The first round pick means more to the Rockets than making the playoffs, and I agree!

    Part of it is who JB played. Remember that KJ and Capela helped lead that comeback win against the Thunder. Who were we relying on in crunchtime at Dallas? Terry and Brewer. And I don't know what the hell was going on with the rotations vs the Suns.

    The lack of consistency in substitutions and playing time ain't helping. And you add on top of that a bunch of guys on this team having already mentally checked out and it's not a shock they can't beat the Suns or an injury-depleted Dallas team.

    Another Clutchfans question that is simply answered by the phrase "JB Bickerstaff"
